Aroma® Grillet® (also on Amazon)



For the salsa:

  • 2 ears of corn

  • 30 oz black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

  • ½ red onion, diced

  • ⅓ cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

  • 2 avocados, cubed

For the dressing:

  • juice from 4 small limes

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp agave or honey

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Set the Grillet™ for 400°. Close the lid and let heat briefly.

  2. Husk the corn and place the two ears onto the Grillet™ and replace the lid.

  3. Cook for 25 minutes while using rubber-tipped tongs to turn them every 5 minutes so the kernels cook and get some grill marks.

  4. Once the corn is cooked and has some color remove from the Grillet™ and turn the appliance off.

  5. Allow the corn to cool, then cut the kernels off the cob and transfer to a medium sized bowl.

  6. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the dressing; set aside.

  7. To the bowl with the corn, add the black beans, cherry tomatoes, onion, and cilantro.

  8. Pour the dressing over the vegetables. Give it all a good stir to fully coat the veggies.

  9. Add the avocado on top and gently toss the salsa again to incorporate the avocado without fully smashing it.

  10. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
